Is it true that several of the Knott County Schools buses have been red flagged with problems? If this is true, have they fixed them yet?

It's true they have a driver with problems. Daddy Bofo. He is just abusive to kids. Don't know how he keeps a job.

It's alot bigger than just one driver. The state has "red tagged" over 20 buses. Which means they are taken out of service. Reckon the guy over the bus garage was warned by the state, but didn't even order the parts to fix them. Now the state has shut them down. Way to go Larry thacker and Kim King, thanks for watchin out for the safety of our kids.

They've got one mechanic, 20 something buses down and the parts arent even ordered. Won't be anybody riding them due to the state shutting the buses down. State warned them over a month ago that they had to be fixed, yet they did nothing.

They don't care what happens to these kids. All they care about is their own paychecks. They let teachers abuse the students so I wouldn't doubt that bus drivers get by with it too.

Hard to believe any of this is Larry Thackers fault. He is all about the kids! I'm sure he is handcuffed somehow.

before making all these judgements about the bus garage and all the employees there you might want to get ALL your facts straight and open your eyes up to where ALL the problems lie....these guys can only do what they are told and what they can....A PAYCHECK IS NOT THE ONLY REASON THESE MEN AND WOMEN ARE THERE FOR!!!!!!! BECAUSE FOR ONE THING THEY DONT MAKE THAT MUCH AND THEY ARE IN IT FOR THE KIDS OR OTHERWISE THEY WOULDNT BE THERE due to all the bull they have to put up with!!!!!! just saying!!!!!!!

Get ALL your facts straight..The state told them over a month ago to order parts, and they didn't. Now the buses are flagged.

Well, I'm not really talking about the bus drivers as much as I am the teachers. They get by with doing pretty much whatever they want.

You must know different teachers than I do. The ones I know go above and beyond the call of duty for their kids, often putting them before their own families. With all the time and preparation it takes to teach the kids every day, teachers' own kids are often "neglected" at home in the evenings and on weekends. Teaching is like other occupations though, in that there are some who care more and are more dedicated to their jobs than some others are. It sounds like you've had a bad experience somewhere down the line, and that's a shame. But, you shouldn't lump all teachers together in such a negative way.

Hey dumb ass the teachers don't maintain the buses, they try to teach morons like you how to wipe your ass. You are either a drop out or idiot still in school barely getting by with your inbred name. Whatever dumb ass is responsible for the maintenance of the buses is the one to blame. Goofy ass.

Did I even once say they did maintain the buses? Like any other thread on this forum, it has gone a bit off topic, but I was trying to make a point; the Knott county school system does not properly safeguard our children, not in the classrooms and not on the buses. Furthermore, do not project your life choices onto me. Just because you are an inbred dropout doesn't mean I am, asshole.

Also, let me be clear when I say that there are some great teachers in this community. However, there are some bad ones too, and while the good ones need to be applauded, the bad ones need to be kicked to the curb.
